"Adam conover and you know for those of us who came of age this century we all have they have a sense that we kinda inherited a fallen world right like the world sucks compared to the one our parents grew up in. It wasn't like this for them right right. They went to college for like a buck fifty semester. They came out with a diploma and zero debt. The Dean gave them a handshake with eye contact when they graduated and then they fell in love got married. They bought a house affordable mortgages were apparently being handed out band fliers in those days and then they afforded to have kids like us how they even had health insurance and pension for our parents. It's a middle class. Life was achievable. Not everybody achieved it of course but the option seemed to be in reach for the majority but today we we know that things are different right. It feels much much harder to get a good job now. It seems like all of our friends are driving Uber for peanuts when they're not sending out resumes. College is now so expensive that getting an education to give yourself a leg up means saddling yourself with crippling debt and if you wanna live in one of the few areas where all the good jobs are located. Housing costs are absurd. And that is you mean. Taking into account that much of our world is either flooded or on fire at any given moment or that authoritarian movements around the rise highs and massive social upheaval is stretching from Hong Kong to Santiago to Hey right here in the United States. You'd be forgiven for thinking you know. The world's gotten Shittier shittier since my parents say well you're not wrong. This disticts bear that feeling out. The benefits are less equally distributed than they used to be and living in a standard middle class. Life is harder in the forty years after nineteen seventy-three productivity went up almost seventy five percent but hourly compensation only only increased nine percent that means that while workers produce more than ever before over the last few decades. They only got a fraction of the increase in what they produced for most workers wages have infect stagnated meaning that they're about the same as they were decades ago and this is especially screwed up because everything from healthcare scare to college to childcare is way more expensive than it used to be so the benefits of productivity didn't go to the workers. Where did they go? Guess what rich people got the top one percent of Americans. Now hold almost one third of America's wealth a third while the rest of us are struggling to afford a roof over our heads on GIG economy economy wages. The wealthy are loading up on super yachts sales of which are currently skyrocketing or ocean rocketing. And of course this out out of control inequality has led to explosive political instability worldwide. So you might be asking yourself the question. What changed used? Why is the world? Our parents came of age in so different from the one that we inhabit. Well the truth is it wasn't random. This change was the product of policies policies and ideas enacted through our political and economic system over decades. People came up with these changes and implemented them and they crafted the world that we live in today and to explain how our global economic system got to where it is now who did it and why and where it might be going into. Today's moment of crisis our guest S. today is mark blyth. He's a professor and political economist at Brown University. And let me tell you he is a delight. I think you're gonNA love this one and it is going to.

"And he was talking about how upset he was that softies were using fire fire FOX for work, basically. Because at the time explorer was in a bit of a state in as is my way, I had to get up there and ask a question. As is my way, I was perhaps a bit of noxious about it. But the point is I kind of brought up that it isn't quite fair to blame us the workers for for having to switch to fire FOX to get our jobs done. Because at the time we really did have to and later on that day in this goes, I should. I would say the the relevance here goes back to what Richard said about how everybody had the best intentions, right? There was a party that night. And I ran into some guys from the explorer team, and boy like I didn't expect that. And I hadn't thought about my voice in my attitude, and how cost a guy could be without meaning to but you you through the the the executive under the bus. Yeah. I really did. And and it was in front of a large group of people and just just no self awareness. It was like the office happening in a meeting setting. I was just totally idiot. But anyway, so when I was talking to the team. Like, I said, they were very polite. It was as though I had been at these human being and they talked to me about some of their decisions and why they had to make them. And that's when you start learning help lyrical a lot of it is or how or how if it isn't political? It's a catastrophe somewhere, and you've got to put a fire out like there's so much chaos. And and and yet you can see that happening Microsoft, of course, because Microsoft is obsessive about about backward. Compatibility where in the apple world we wake up and a new operating system is automatically installed itself over the old one like you did last week and looks more or less like the one we had last week and set it all your files or missing. What's a file remember when you head date on your machine that was a good day? That's the part that sucks. Right. Because I am one phone. I'm not updating because if I do a bunch of apps are going to stop working out. Yeah. So this is an example of like political versus catas-. Trophy in a way, I have way more freedom in on the Microsoft side of things, partly because I have to if I'm going to be able to get to something that I've worked on twenty years ago twenty five years ago, I'm gonna need access to the to the file format. The I'm gonna need to get in this amount. Of course, Microsoft, it's incredibly easy to do that because they have shifted forward with all the craft where apple leaves the Krupp behind. But sometimes often will always at the cost of the customer. Apple has always known better. What the customer wanted than the customer new. They're very good at yet it that. Yeah. Just, you know, the I think job said it best when he said don't hold it that way. Yeah. You're doing it wrong. Doing a wrong. Yet, it that is such a tech thing, you know, like to using up. He's a hardware pieces of software. The person who designed it is looking over your shoulder, and you can feel the tension because you you're moving the mouse cursor toward that one button. They know doesn't work you don't know it, and you can just feel they want to stop you grab you say no you need to click that other button. You know, Doug Ross would. That's what testing used to be, you know, before unit testing, you would just look over somebody's shoulder and in make them really nervous about the bugs. They know. They left in the code.

"It's it's death by a thousand cuts. But there was a there was a version of windows before Longhorn, but after X P. Yeah. So the X P codename was Whistler. And this one was Blackcomb. Right. Right. Yeah. Yeah. The so and so where Whistler mountain far from where I am a ski mountain at the Microsoft. He's loved to ski at in the next mountain over is called black. Oh, and so yeah. The next version was going to be called black home and one of the interesting truth when you talk about that timeframe, right? If in the two thousand one timeframe is that's also when gates releases the trustworthy computing. Letter that's after annakournakova and code red and the slammer virus all those things that happen to windows two thousand and XP. And so he started like everybody stop what you're doing work on security, and he took a big chunk of the most senior guys in windows to fix windows. And this is part of what went wrong Longhorn was that all of this security patches meant they had to rewrite all the drivers the driver model was completely different after XP SP two. And the reason it was, you know, reason it was called service pack, two is already figured out what service pack one was going to be because it was all stuff that got cut from the initial release of X P. I didn't know that. That's the this is the dynamic part of what what goes so wrong is be before. Whistler even ships are now working on black home. And at this point Microsoft is ninety plus percent of the desktop market. Like the own the space and gates has just stepped down to see ego right after the monopoly crisis. Jay gates steps down bomber takes over. And now gates his chief architect, and I got the sneaky suspicion. He just had too much time on his hands and black comb was originally specified as object oriented operating system top to bottom natch what it was right like an object based file system and as winning. Mapping everywhere. Yeah. Yeah. So they I mean it was so far out of bounds. Like win is the dialed back version of the vision that was black home. And that's what they made into Longhorn in the net came up with the three pillars, but also incorporating dot net into the core of the operating system. Right, right. I remember that at all. But remember they were doing this work on version one of dot net. It just wasn't ready to be part of an operating system. Like one could argue if they had waited until two thousand five until two version two, and it was so much stronger. It might have worked. But part of what went so wrong with Longhorn is that they had changed the security model the CPU's at gone sideways. They were redesigning operating system from scratch with his big vision of of object orientated, and they threw dot net in there and mix, and it's like you can change one thing in design of an operating system. But she can't change everything. Yeah. Yeah. Right. No, no. That's like that's like changing someone's home address. So they end up at a completely different house that looks nothing like the one they they had left in the morning, right? And can I I I actually haven't nuggets similar well some way is your nuggets still going. No doubt. Okay. So so I I have a nugget that I will nugget then for you as long as we're making nugget into a verb allow me to begin. So nugget this I was in one of those big meetings where there were several thousand Microsoft people, and it was it was probably two thousand four two thousand five and bomber was up there..

He threw a chair through a piece of glass or something like sort of powerful story. He's also the guy behind Google, plus. Yeah. Oh, I didn't. I didn't know that. Okay. That's that's interesting. Because remember like I really liked the condole Tra. I I didn't mean to just say Vick like I knew him. I didn't I interviewed him apparently. But but he wants you know, key. I remember him being being very intelligent doing letting I can understand him getting poached, and I don't know that bomber stories apocryphal, but I was in a meeting of Microsoft, where kosh I think we're probably going to be skirting the edge of lawsuits here. Let's just pretend I didn't say anything about the chair and. Onto happier thing. So. We could prove anything. I haven't seen them fly. You know? Anyway, they're rumors things happen. Yeah. Everything's fine. We're all fine. Does bomber still work there? I haven't even kept up on it. No. But Steve was also the guy who got us doing the sixty four bit question at at a PD. See? That's right. It started. Yeah. You mentioned Longhorn. There's nothing that. I mean of all the things Microsoft God. When I was up at channel nine see. This is something I never really got to talk about back in the day because I was still waiting for Microsoft, but vista was a such a. Just a backward. Step, you know, because I I had requisition to the most powerful laptop you yet in the universe at the time. It was one of those Dell XP S's like five GP us and in six cores, and it it was doing nothing but turning insurance enshrining and Longhorn itself was like one of the most beautiful asses. I've used to this day and win a fast and all that technology in their thing. They built it up right with win f s the file system, and and win affects all of these things in win effect, gut totally taken out, but I also recall. You explaining when f s now win FX was essentially a distributed meta data system database for for files. So that it would basically take the file system that you have and add a whole lot of meditated, not just the properties of files, and that would allow you to do sorting and all that stuff. And so you explained when f s like this so you so you get your porn collection. And you want to sort it by how dirty it is like you can have a category like threesomes set had burned to the ground afterwards. You know, I'm older now that's not dirty anymore. Should..

"Com. Easy to get to easy to find. And whenever people Google me. I'm able to go into my logs because I really advanced software, and I'm able to see what this search term was that led them to my side. And a lotta times the search terms happen to be very odd. And I don't know how they got to me, especially when it comes to things like horse balls, and you know, dog ding dongs and things like that. And and I like to read these out once a week on the show, right? Usually get about a dozen of them that are that are pretty good. And eventually people actually started trying to get my attention through Google weirdos by. Seeing if they could make their way into weirdos by entering something into Google like, hey, Rory, you know, your soul, and I would find that in my in my. In my logs, and I would say the search term is a Rory urine tool. Right. And so people found a way to communicate directly with me through Google searches. Right. So, but the thing that's funny about this is that your blog posts are surreal, and they're full of all sorts of strange combinations of words that normal people would never put in the same sentence. Right. So the therms that people actually look for and get a hit on your page can be tell a lot about their weirdness. Right. That narrating. All right. So the first one mirror. Yeah. So the first one was less anal leakage, and I go oh God. And you what you want more? I didn't. I I didn't know they weren't the phone. And of course, they're to be fair. I was right. There's nothing wrong with what I said if you read a search term, and it says more anal leakage than the first thing you think of is. No, I want less anal. Nothing wrong. I said nothing inappropriate. Of course. Not those people were soft. Are probably still in charge. And I think they're wonderful. So anyway, that was just the first one and it got worse from there. And and what was great was that this person for Microsoft. We had a little live chat room, and I are c backchannel going and this person was fuming get off the toilet humor fuming. And then the guys come on. And and you know, Carl I've done a lot of press. And I've never followed a story about anal leakage. They kept bringing it up. I'm trying. I'm embarrassed. Right. I'm just trying to change the subject as fast as I can. Yeah. Let's talk about dot net. Yeah. And then they just kept bringing it back and bringing in I found the show. Well, oh, Lester was they wanna know what show? It was. You don't wanna know? What you tell me. What show was if show sixty one with Vic gun doto Steve Shalini lane. Oh, yeah. And it was the beginning of Longhorn. I mean, it was an incredibly. It's April of two thousand four is right before the PD did incredibly important show. And they couldn't get off the anal leakage. Warious? They love a lot of people couldn't at the time because of Alestra Alaska was really big. That's right. Caper? I think the event that started you writing this blog posts that had anal leakage in it was that you were you you were in new London, and I had some sugar free candy with multiple in it, and it's stuff.

But back in the day of when Rory and I did the show together. Fifty to a hundred the shows were two hours long. Right. They we did two interviews per show, and we only had like one or two shows per week. I can't remember. So it wasn't warn producing a lot of content. But we also, you know, did the Google weirdos thing, and we did some music occasionally, we kinda like variety show. This is before we branched off into Monday's. And we got a shall we say a very senior person at Microsoft who was a fan of hours for dot net. Right to line up an interview with a couple of executives, and this person at Microsoft said now, I want you to be respectful, and you know, no off color humor. Be you know, professional about this. Okay. Yes. Right. I said, except I forgot to tell you. Wouldn't have mattered now. He's. These guys are on the phone on hold waiting for us to get to their interview.

"Roy the tables are turned five thousand dollars a few had five grand to spend on technology right now. What would you buy cheese? And. Yes, so that question was and I was trying to figure out what would I buy? Because again, you are talking to someone who is ignorant of you know, the technology is currently available because I missed out on all the toys, but one of each. Well, that's the thing. Right. Like, what do you get? Now there. Do you need a big thing? Junaid medium size thing does apt to come in a box. Should it be a card what about some VR virtual reality? What about that stuff? Microsoft. You know, I, you know, on Twitter, Microsoft posts Aldo's, you know, ads about all their products and things that they sell. I guess that's what adds or poor people already understand that. But one of those products was for there. It's not it's not VR. But it's like M mar reality right hololens. It wasn't. It wasn't odd minute either. It was something like right in the middle, and I made fun of the post. But then the I didn't get a reply, but I did. And it was it was to a demo of this stuff. And it is so cool. If I think it's what I think it is Campbell. The only thing about this. No 'em arm. I yeah. I think I think it's well, whatever it is. It's probably up there in the Microsoft store in. It's not ritual. But I got the feeling that it doesn't just allow you to do. Virtual reality like. Mixed reality. Where it's like you have it they serve as a hug partly for for what you're working on. Yeah. You know, and in that like there's a use case finally. Oh, yeah. VR headsets have been around the first time. I used a VR headset was in nineteen ninety. I think and it was for the grand opening of this huge superstore. And of course, it was fifty pounds. And I I have scoliosis from it. But I played one of those weird games with all the Ray trace dinosaurs flying around you had to shoot and ended about twelve F B S, but it's been with Reverend rooms. Well, at that point in time, it could have been a combination of both to be on to be totally honest. But yeah. The now eat now, we have the same technology, essentially and people still haven't quite like when I when I talked to people in stores and other. No, it's the that best buy people are really snotty, but they're like a VR you mean last year or or like, I don't wanna see it's a millennial thing. But it's sort of like when they say who listens to albums anymore. You know, I do I like the whole the whole album, and I don't care VR just became exciting last year. Hell, yeah. I'm interested in that stuff. There's so many cool things going. I do think that the mixed reality concept is what will ultimately price smartphone that. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Because that's what I wanted back in the day. I been it might even be Don Iraq somewhere it. I'm positive it's on NIA Polian. But after I got my SMTP fifty six hundred for those of you who are too young that is the phone that really changed the game for Microsoft back when Microsoft was still doing a lot of mobile stuff, and in talk PC windows mobile, the early two thousands, Microsoft really kickoff in mobile and the SMTP fifty six hundred like a like, I mentioned was a particularly wonderful phone. And when I was using it. I realized hey, I've got you know, in two thousand and five or whenever. I've got word processor here. I had already written a replacement for access that I hit installed on it. I had so I have my database equivalent I had a spreadsheet equivalent. I had my e books. I mean, it was it was an ipod long before the ipod was would it became ipods rap? But I'm talking about the ipad, touch, obviously it. It was just so impressive on it. Not what if this thing could somehow connect glasses, and I could go on a plane and use one of these portable folding keyboards and just put my glasses on and use. My phone is a computer like why can't I do that? And that that technology was around in two thousand five like you could have found out.

And it's that kind of thing that I love now that we didn't use the hat when you think about the raspberry pi when you think about in art, we know and all the other million things I've missed out on there is so much that we can do without having to rely on on some manufacturer. Without waiting around for them to maybe hopefully, build that things we want made or the things we just wanna do like I've had this strong temptation lately to create a a raid array out of out of flash disks in.

There's so many things you can make now you'll make them just for the purpose of making them. Now. There's a first world kind of opportunity. Well music is something that you've always done. What about that? Have you been able to write any more music? Unfortunately, for me music follows the same rule as writing. So I haven't been writing as much music for the longest time. I actually only wrote music and words to pass the time because being sick and bedridden is like being on one long flight. You never hit off the flight. You are always there. You're always uncomfortable. Yet hate it. So you just pass the time, and that means sleep, and then you know, reading airport novels and things like that. So he not a lot of music, but what I did do the whole time oddly is I kept coding, I didn't stop. But I needed to strike. I self. So I got married far away from I o s and dot net. You know, I wanted to get away from the familiar territories. And this is where we start getting into an actual Ted podcast. Right. We're gonna talk about we're gonna dog about programming here because I really got into Lua annually. It seems. Yeah, I love it. And Chris I tweeted about this. I think two years ago in Chris sales asked me, you know, he tweeted back why? Yes, me the same thing about soccer. We want to use that. Why would you do? That increases questions are usually a combination. Right. Like it. It's an insult mixed with a genuine question. Right. There's a little bit of shade. He's thrown at you in and there's some suspicion. But he's giving you the opportunity to sell them online. Right. Absolutely. And and the thing about Lua. And if you guys haven't played with Lou people out there, I'm gonna tell you right now if you have a an ipad won't work for the iphone, but if you have an ipad look for something called code. It's just the word code with the letter A at the end, it's Lua, it's a Lua ID. And it's one of the best ideas, I probably ever used for just straight coding smell. You. Don't have a form builder L L away. away L O UA. So I think it's Portuguese for moon.

I I want to say that's the bio that I wrote will most of it. Anyway. No about have the first half. Didn't I write that for my first interview with you? Yep. Original by I think was it two thousand and three December of two thousand three the show came out in two thousand four I think I think you hired me like twelve minutes later 'cause Mark Don was moving on. Really lucky? So, but yeah, oh, you had a question. Where all it's things. They. Yeah. How are things will? Yes. So I went away not. Not not quite the way. It sounds because that makes it sound like either went on vacation or to prison, and I didn't quite do either. A lot of things happened. Like didn't I show you some of the photos from sick? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I met up with you, Richard. Chris sells, you know. Like everybody was down there at that at that meat shop at that meat restaurant in Portland that was on hand road trips. Now, I couldn't believe that. Yeah. We went in there because you know, one of the problems I'm having is is something called delayed gastric emptying which causes me to throw up like all the damn time. It's really unpleasant. And so being in there. I just thought I wanted to eat that stuff like every three minutes. One of those guys would come by and ask you like if you wanted to slice of the cow like it was almost like the I don't remember which Hitchhiker's book it was, but somewhere it might have been it might have been the restaurant at the end of the galaxy.

But anyway, so as you know, I got sick. I showed you some. The photographs. They were disgusting people out there if you would like to see photographs of I don't know how to put it but skin sliding off of my legs relieving gigantic letty patches behind. I can give you those even the Franklin over dinner. Not the best choice. Everybody. I've shown them to all like three and a half. People. Just go disgusting. Blah, blah, never wanted to see.

I mean, I was lucky just I got to have a lot of amazing experiences early on. And when it switched to things like my mom having me arrested in the middle of my working on a contract for Joel Polski using Zaman.

"Okay. Well, as you know, or you may not know listeners that I've been getting into doing live streaming events. Yes. And that's the whole idea of going into a place with a few cameras setting them up and doing a live switched camera shoot three or four camera shoots and doing that live to YouTube, and then of course, the edits already getting made. And like, I've got some great technology to do that. But one thing that you can't count on is the WI fi or the network wherever driving for sure. Right. And so there's some technology out here called cellular bonding and the way it works or network bonding. So the way it works, and you probably know all about this, Richard. Because you're that network guy is that you take various networks, and you sort of put them together in, you know, a couple of a WI fi Jack an network Jack a hardwired Jack and a couple of cellular modems. And then basically it uses whatever is available. Able at the time and can automatically fail over and switch. So this is there there's a thousand dollar device out there. It's called the live you solo wireless. Live video streaming encoder. And it works with any RTM p thing so Facebook live twitch YouTube Twitter live video streams, you can use restrain if you wanna go to all of those things and essentially it's this little streaming box. So not only does it put together, you know, four networks and seamlessly let you use them. Just automatically works whatever's working you actually use that to do the stream. So it's got an HD M. I input. Right. So I use the sling studio, which has a hub that wirelessly connects to up to four sources, or you know, in my case of a conference three cameras and the PowerPoint, you know, the the desktop and then he can switch. Them with an ipad or a MAC book app, and those edits automatically happen automatically goes get streamed. So basically, I take the HDMI output of that go into the live you and now everything's happening. And you don't have to just bet it all on one wire or one wifi connection. Right beautiful. It's always great. When it works bonding is a complicated tech. So it's a it's definitely a challenge. But it's cool. If we get it to work, the main thing, I think with that multiple streaming sources that you could have using one connection to stream to Facebook and other conditions streaming to you to that kind of thing. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Yep. Well, there you go. That's my sorry. I had to wait till after Christmas or at Christmas to tell everybody about this. Because now the people are like, hey, man, I'm gonna you know, going to bring back that giant TV and get one of these instead. Yeah. So who's talking to us, Richard?

"Leave the company I started and next time around I promised myself, I would start a business with my heart. I and my head meaning, of course, I'm going to think through everything you would think through, where's the white space? How do you disrupt it, helping you improve upon something for the consumer and create value, but a new it had to be purpose driven. And for me, that lightning bolt moment came to me when I recognize that I didn't actually have a good answer that question of what business could I start? So I started thinking to myself, what could you do? We created a platform where women could start a business without all the risk in the heartache, but a lot of the prophets and the fun and the community, the hope in the upside. And that's really what the mission and the underlying idea of Stellan dot is is reinventing flexible income for women. What is similar to building companies in the beginning, you look crazy. You are defying all probability all reason. And I think it has to start with that. I think you have to believe beyond reason because otherwise you'd give there's naysayers around you. There's a million reasons why wouldn't work. You have to be sure enough that what you're trying to create needs to exist, stick with it. And that's what I did in the very beginning of this company started making jewelry in my living room on nights and weekends while I was pregnant had another full time job, and I looked completely insane and I had no idea what I was doing. And so I basically figured out through a lot of hustle in iteration and each day it got slightly less crazy because I went out into the world and I found people better than I at this particular skill that was necessary to bring this vision to life, and in fact improve upon the vision. So that took me meeting someone who knew everything. About how existing home based businesses worked so that I can learn from them. It was about finding my partner Blyth Harris or chief lied about who actually knew how to make jewelry is a person trained artists, and she worked in luxury stay. So it was about finding other people to go on this crazy journey with me. Was telling start in jewelry, but now we're fashion accessories company and actually family of brands. Stehlin dot has three brands in.
